My Mom watched The Time Traveler's Wife. She called me and just went on a tirade. When my Mom is angry about something sometimes I am smart enough to open up text edit and write down everything she says. Tonight I was smart. Here is my Mom's review of The Time Traveler's Wife.
"You know how I wanted to see The Time Travelers Wife when it was in theaters? It was so dumb you wouldn't even believe it's a movie. Is it taken from a book or something? Oh god. I would have been so pissed if I went to the theater. Well, they made a very bad movie. I'll tell them that. I don't know who made it or anything. Oh it's on again I'll tell you about it. That's what made me remember I wanted to tell you. It sucked bad. Well, let me tell you, don't watch it. I'm not joking or anything. I've never seen a movie like that. Who would make a movie like that? Someone bought that and made it and sold tickets? It was on HBO! They must have okayed it too. That was the biggest waste of time and I kept watching it you know, huh uh, no good. Don't waste your time on Time Traveler's Wife. Remember how I tried talking everyone into seeing it? We should be able to get rich somehow if they can sell that to somebody."
During this angry review I couldn't get in a word. I was just laughing and typing. Then I told my Mom that I just typed up everything she said and I was going to blog it. "Oh no. What did I say? Don't."
Then she thought about it a bit and told me:
"Well if anyone has seen it, after you write this, I'd like to know what they thought about it. Maybe you can write that. Any comments are welcome. Good or bad. Maybe somebody liked it! You never know. I don't think anybody would."
I want to hear every movie reviewed by my Mom now. Forget Ebert, give me more Mom. I hope she will make this a regular thing.
